ORLANDO, Fla. -

Warmer temperatures are again headed to Central Florida, but so is the possibility for some rain.

After a brisk morning, high temperatures on Tuesday will reach the mid-70s in Central Florida.  There are no rain chances, and the overnight low will be near 55 degrees.

"A front in the Florida Panhandle and Georgia will stay away from Central Florida, but it will be a focal point for more energy into Wednesday," Local 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said.

South winds ahead of the front will increase rain chances to 30 percent by Wednesday afternoon, which will see a high of 77 degrees in Orlando.

Temperatures will warm near 80 from Thursday through the weekend.

Rain chances will be at 20 percent through Friday.

Expect rain chances to end for the weekend.
